Default 3 bolt-2 bolt dizzy adapter parts

I have a 3 bolt to 2 bolt dizzy adapter on my 39 motor so I can run the 2 bolt crab dizzy. I have just swapped out one intake for another, and I need to make the vacuum brake plumbing hook up since the intake port is in a different place. WHERE on EARTH can I get the little brass fittings to complete this connection WITHOUT having to buy another complete adapter?

We have the little brass fittings that go on the end of the vacuum tubing. It slides on to the fresh tube then compresses onto it when tightened down. I forgot the thread size but we just got a supply of them in. Call our sales office Monday if you still need some.

If you look up "ford nut" I think any NAPA that has Weatherhead brand fittings would have what you want. It is a compression nut that the taper on the end takes the place of a ferrule used on modern compression fittings. C&G, Carpenter and Drake I think stock them.

Ford also used three different varieties of the fitting in question. One variety had the same hole size but accepted a 1/2” wrench versus a 7/16”. There was another variety used only in wiper motor tube connections

Personally I feel as though the vacuum brake vacuum is not needed on today’s octane level fuels. I still run the tube for looks but plug off the inside of it

I agree with 35fordtn, the swamp water we buy as gas doesn't need it.
